this fight of the middle class comes at a time when the president is on the defensive and lost some ground in key areas. cnn orc poll tonight shows the president's lead is half a point outside the margin of error. last month he was leading with nine points. we told you last night about a pew poll which shows romney leading obama. you can see also barely outside the margin of error. in that same poll, the president's 18-point lead among women disappeared. he's now running even with romney. so who is winning this vital war over middle class tax cuts? rah ham salon joins us and john avlon, senior political columnist at "newsweek" and "the daily beast." this debate over $5 trillion and what you're trying to do and on the backs of the middle class, this isn't just about a number and who is using a number specifically in what way. it goes to the heart of whether the president is going to win. >> in 2008, barack obama did something incredibly brilliant. he actually managed to outflank the republicans on taxes, which was their biggest, most potent issue for literally decades, by saying, hey, if yo
to refurbish a full abrams tank that even the defense department admits it doesn't need. all part of the fight over defense spending cuts that we have been talking about on this show rather obsessively for the past year. the $1.2 trillion in sequestration cuts take effect on january 2nd and about half of that sum is going to come from defense, making it a major election year issue. >> they're looming across virginia, cuts to national defense that threaten nearly a million small business jobs. tim kean supported the washington budget deal that got us here. a deal that destroy over 500,000 jobs in the defense industry. >> so if defense spending is such a big issue this year, why are we on the hook for those tanks? drew griffin from our special investigations unit is "outfront" with the story. >> reporter: it's a remarkable sight, parked in the california desert. more than 2,000 of them, row upon row of m-1 abrams tanks, built by general dynamics beginning in the 1980s. most of them are still ready to roll. so when the u.s. army's budget folks sat down to make some tough decisions about what to c
, defense ening. here's a little of what you're so upset about. mitt romney said it today. >> in a place like syria for instance, we should through our partners in the region, work to identify dissidents within syria that are responsible people, try to bring them together, provide weaponing and funding and they can promote their agenda. >> provide funding and weapons for them so they can defend their agenda. >> i have two questions. number one, when we get involved with war or providing weapons, it needs to go before congress. the constitution says that is the prerogative of the legislatures. it's difficult to know who friend and foe are. over a decade now in afghanistan. we have trouble telling friend from foe. the people we're training, the afgh afghan soldiers, are turning their weapons on us. so, how are we supposed to know, who is our friend and foe? there's a significant christian population in syria. they fled from iraq after the war began. they felt it was safer to be under assad. what is that christian population saying? many news reports say they're unsure whether they want to

result. i must note, though, that while the republican budget increases the budget of the defense defendant, it slashes the budget that would have protected these diplomats. >> i might note that the funding that is currently enjoyed by the state department was voted bipartisan, one more democrat voting for the appropriations than republicans. >>neil: they are putting it on all republicans and it ain't flying well with senator graham. you have heard that. what do you think of that? >>guest: as the ranking republican on the foreign operations subcommittee that funds the state department and that is a bunch of garbage. this is about -- you talk about the fiscal cliff being predictable, what is predictable with a lack of security in libya and militias are not dealt with, consulates and embassies will be attacked. we need to get to the real security situation? did people make a request? were they denied? why did susan rice come on national tv and say this was result of the video in did she say that based on intelligence for five days? she said it five days after the attack. she either
in interviews and not sure she should be getting that defensive. that's for other people to do. she should be above the fray. >> i would love to interrue her, but with all due respect, she might say i know what i'm doing because after the alleged rebellion with tag and politico.com reported on her husband has at least seen some improvement in the numbers so while, you know, we read the articles, we are journalists and pundits or whatever the case may be, she perhaps believes she knows better for her husband and why she's chosen to be the attack dog and i don't like using that word in reference to any woman but she is going out attacking. >> clearly she feels that way. i learned the other day that she was the first wife of a presidential candidate to ever appear on "meet the press" which i was fascinated with. i don't know how that came about. if she insisted on it or she did or the campaign did. but i think that's really interesting that they feel that she's that effective whereas with michele obama, you know, she is doing stuff mostly off the radar. she's exciting the base. she's going ou
focused right now on ideas, on the defense of the ideas, bold ideas, as romney articulated last week. he changed the whole narrative. the obama campaign's effort to undermine it by these silly attacks, republicans can't stand young people, they want to kick them off their parents' health care, they want to go after women, the war on women. and now the new option, they're going after big bird, oh, my gosh. it's silly. >> when paul ryan says that the fullest extent of his experience in foreign policy is that he's voted to send people to war, when you've got joe biden whose son not only served for a year but also as a senator from delaware, he's been out there at dover sending troops off, welcoming home those caskets and not to mention he has a foreign policy expert. >> is he really a foreign policy expert? every single position that joe biden has taken on foreign policy issues for his career has been wrong. he has opposed every positive step we've taken in foreign policy. so bring him on when it comes to foreign policy. i hope that he actually does. >> the one thing you haven't mentioned o

of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
